How were the Council PTA standing committees selected?
From the inception of the Mt. Lebanon Council PTA, Council PTA has chosen to have committees that represent and include all students and families. Some of our committees encompass a broad range of topics and issues affecting the student population at large like Arts in Education (Reflections), Cultural Arts, Environmental Concerns, and Juvenile Protection. Other committees are for parental purposes such as Human Relations, Newsletters, Parent/School Education, and Technology/Website. And a few are for internal purposes such as By-Laws and Membership.
Who can attend Council PTA meetings?
Council PTA meetings are open to all PTA members. Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month in September, November, January, February, and March at 9:00 a,m. and are at different Mt. Lebanon schools on a rotating basis. The May meeting is the third Wednesday of the month and is always held at the HS for the presentation of the Georgia Pogue Scholarships.
